Empowering Transgender and Gender Diverse Youth: Q&A with Linda Hawkins, PhD, MSEd, LPC; and Nadia Dowshen, MD, MSHP
By Cornerstone Blog, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia | June 29, 2020
Stoneleigh Fellow Nadia Dowshen and her colleague Linda Hawkins spoke to CHOP’s Cornerstone Blog about their commitment to research and clinical support for transgender and gender diverse children and youth and their families.
We celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month each June as a tribute to those involved in the Stonewall Uprising, a catalyst for the gay rights movement in the United States. This year not only marks the 50th anniversary of this annual LGBTQ celebration, but also the recent landmark Supreme Court ruling that the civil rights law protects gay and transgender workers from workplace discrimination.
In recognition of these LGBTQ milestones, we sat down with Linda Hawkins, PhD, MSEd, LPC; and Nadia Dowshen, MD, MSHP; co-founders and co-directors of the Gender and Sexuality Development Clinic, and faculty in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, to discuss CHOP’s commitment to research and clinical support for transgender and gender diverse children and youth and their families.
